    Default White House cut 200 + million in funding to combat teenage pregnancy

    who need such thoughtful program that aim to help teenagers avoid pregnancy and deal with pregnancy just turn out the light and pretend its not happening.

    The Trump administration has quietly axed $213.6 million in teen pregnancy prevention programs and research at more than 80 institutions around the country, including Childrenís Hospital of Los Angeles and Johns Hopkins University.

    The decision by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will end five-year grants awarded by the Obama administration that were designed to find scientifically valid ways to help teenagers make healthy decisions that avoid unwanted pregnancies.

    Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and other top Trump appointees are outspoken opponents of federal funding for birth control, advocating abstinence rather than contraceptives to control teen pregnancies.

    I never understood people who get their funnsies by trolling other people on message boards. I can't think of a reason why anybody would enjoy arguing with non-serious people.

    Yeah, not so much anymore thanks to many thoughtful posters here challenging my views and making strong arguments for alternative perspectives.
    I'm sorry somebody pooped on your dreams. It's tough because so many do but keep on keepin on and make the impossible dream a reality. If you can, others will benefit too and IMO.....that's what it's all about Alphie.

    Well given the context of how you post here it's safe to say im right.

    The left has ensured teenage girls have the morals of Billy goats and zero self control, then get angry because GOVERNMENT does deal with the inevitable consequences. Priceless.

    I really liked that dude. They couldn't wait to ban him.
    Trump supporters have space bugs in their heads. It is the only explanation.

    Fear not, john will be along shortly to present a bill to us that prevents the federal government from funding such education programs all together, mostly because of apportioned taxes and yada yada.

    A scientific valid way to prevent pregnancy has been known since the dawn of time.
    Keep your britches on.
    What is there to study? What is there to fund?

    Thank you for asking that. I don't understand how 'paulbot' could turn. Where did Adroit 'turn to'? Bernie?

    Well, as long as popping babies out illegitimately is a BIG G'MINT SUBSIDIZED (aka taxpayer funded) it will continue to be 'subsidized'. Some taxpayers are getting fed up.

    They don't make it a secret. The anti abortion fetishists and the real vicious types out there really do want women who aren't ready to be moms to be punished with a baby because they are Slutty McSlutSluts having unapproved sex.
